Counting down the season with stats.

San Francisco 49ers v Arizona Cardinals

You guessed it, it is countdown time. There are 96 days remaining until the start of the regular season for the Arizona Cardinals. That means we need to find some stats about the No. 96.

In terms of uniform number, Kareem Martin wears 96.

Now for some stats:

  • In 1961, Sam Etcheverry completed 96 passes.
  • Ray Mallouf (1941) and Don Panciera (1952) each attempted 96 passes in a season. Panciera's 96 passing attempts were all he had in his career, too.
  • Johnny Roland, Willard Harrell, and Mel Gray all played 96 games for the Cardinals in their careers.
  • Larry Fitzgerald had 96 receptions in 2008.
  • Larry Center (1994) and Rob Moore (1999) were thrown to 96 times.
  • Four players had exactly 96 career receiving yards with the Cardinals in a season -- George Rogge (1932), Johnny Roland (1970), Marcus Dowdell (1995) and Chad Fann (1994). Rogge's 96 yards in 1932 were the only receiving yards in his Cardinals career.
  • Running back Willard Harrell is 96th all-time in career receiving yards for the Cardinals.
  • Kicker Jim Bakken scored 96 points in 1965 and 1966.
  • Halfbacks Pierre Gautt and Joe Childress and quarterback Jim Hart each scored 96 points as Cardinals.

Can you think of any other "96" stats?
